Tutoring Service


Hi!

I offer tutorship in Digital Media, on both PC and Macintosh computers. Having taken all of the 2D-related Digital Media courses at Cabrillo College, I am well-versed with all of the assignments and expectations. I received As in all Art and Digital Media classes, with no late assignments and nearly perfect scores.

I am a friendly, quiet, flexible person who loves design. I am understanding and empathetic of life’s lemons and hardships.
